Grangegorman Planning Scheme Amendments

Printer-friendly version

Notice is hereby given in accordance with Section 170A(1) of the Planning and Development Act 2000 (as amended) Dublin City Council on behalf of the Grangegorman Development Agency is making this application to An Bord Pleanala to request an amendment to the Grangegorman Planning Scheme 2012.

In summary, the proposed amendment to the Planning Scheme seeks to;

  • Enhance sustainable modes of transport to Grangegorman by omitting the proposed opportunity for vehicular access from Prussia Street to Grangegorman, including the Western Gateway (also referred to as the Prussia Street Gateway) and Park Shopping Centre. This will make the overall Grangegorman SDZ more accessible to pedestrians and cyclists along the western boundary and through the site.
  • Amend the urban form at the Western Gateway to prioritise pedestrian and cycling access and circulation and enhance the public realm.
  • Give greater flexibility for the timescale for the delivery of the Western Gateway, which it is envisaged will be delivered in tandem with the roll out of development on an adjoining Prussia Street site in 3rd party ownership.

An Bord Pleanala determined that the proposed amendments to the Planning Scheme would constitute a material change to the planning scheme. Therefore, the Planning Authority is now undertaking a public consultation process in accordance with the procedures set out in Section 170 of the Planning and Development Act 2000 (as amended)

A copy of the Proposed Amendments to the Grangegorman Planning Scheme together with accompanying Environmental Reports is available for inspection at Dublin City Council, Civic Offices, Wood Quay, Dublin 8
